Canoe Route West

The Lavase River was once part of the route followed by fur traders of the Northwest Company heading West.

Now in winter it is a frozen highway giving access to Lake Nipissing.

La Vase Portages

I took a lovely walk along the beginning of the La Vase Portages the other day.¬† I had to end it here because I didn’t bring my canoe.

It is important that this historical portion of the Voyageur Canoe Route to the West be preserved.  This local organization has a mission to do just that.
